We are delighted to announce that the popular children’s workshop is back.  Bring your children to Bourne End Library for an afternoon of make believe based around Quentin Blake’s story Patrick. Local professional musicians Dan & Marisa Cornford together with Jacqueline Brown and her team will lead the children on a magical journey of creative fun to illustrate Patrick’s adventures and to enjoy the music specially composed for the story.

Sunday 1st October from 2-4 pm.

Bourne End Library, Wakeman Rd, Bourne End SL8 5SX

Tickets - £8 and £6 for siblings to cover cost of  art materials and drinks.  Tickets must be booked in advance as we need  to know numbers beforehand.

Children must be accompanied by a parent.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Patrick! For when he plays his violin, the most extraordinary things start to happen: fish can fly, cows can dance and trees grow cakes instead of apples. There's fireworks and fun and colours everywhere, when Patrick performs his magical tunes…

The afternoon begins with a recapitulation of the story, followed by the children making props and drawings to support the story.

Finally the narration of story begins and is accompanied by music played by Dan (Viola), Marisa (Keyboard) and by the children using their art and props to capture Patrick’s experiences with his magical violin.

The music is specially written for Patrick by Marisa Cornford.
